Things to Be Aware of When Posting About Your Case on Facebook

If you currently have an active injury case, there are some things to be aware of with social media concerning your case. Approximately two-thirds of adults in the US use social media sites such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook according to the Pew Research Center. It may seem natural to share with your family and friends’ things that happen in your day to day life. However, be cautious in what you share on social media. In many instances, what you share on online can be used against you to dispute a personal injury claim. The Internet is often the first-place insurance companies look to investigate a claim. Your posts can be used against you to dispute the severity of your injuries, the day the accident took place and where.

Here are a few things to avoid posting to protect your personal injury claim thereby helping your accident attorney to win your case.

Avoid posting:

  • Status updates indicating you can participate in activities contrary to your injuries or treatment plan.
  • Photos or videos of you engaging in physical activity that would disprove the injuries you claim to have.
  • Photos of you drinking. This could indicate you enjoy alcohol and perhaps you were driving drunk.
  • Never post anything that sounds like you admitting fault or anything that could cast doubt that you are partially to blame.
  • Do not post about your finances.
  • Avoid posting negative comments about the insurance company.
  • Do not give information about when you return to work.

 

Also, be aware of what kinds of things your friends post about you and monitor this to help your case.
